UCL and Birmingham University has been running a project: Developing and Evaluating Dynamic Optimisation for Train Control Systems. The original project is now complete and we are now running another project with First Group in order to implement our system in the new trains for their Transpennine and Great Western franchises.

In order to disseminate the results of our project to people at the senior management level of the industry, the funder (RSSB) has created a brochure and ran its launch event at RSSB on 29 June, where UCL and Birmingham presented results. The brochure is now downloadable from https://www.sparkrail.org/Lists/Records/DispForm.aspx?ID=24940 (log into to Spark may be required).
